What are the regional and international implications of the US policy shift on Jerusalem? How does this shift affect US interests in the region, particularly its traditional role in mediating the Arab-Israeli conflict? What impact did Abbas’s recent UN Security Council speech have domestically and internationally?
Is this a paradigm shift in US foreign policy toward the conflict, or is this change reversible in the future? What are the Palestinians’ options if they no longer see the United States as a fair mediator, and what legal steps can they take? What role can the international community play, given the new American position?
